looking for a win in its first game of the season, and will be looking for some quality pitching to
lead them to victory. They have several players who can lead the team to victory. Starting
pitcher Jonathan Fincher was named the preseason C-USA Pitcher of the Year, and he is the
leading pitcher. Fincher pitched two-plus innings, allowing five runs and eight hits, and walking
one batter over 36 pitches. Then, Anthony Gianette and Cade Gibson pitched three scoreless
innings to close the game, while Kyle Crigger earned his second save of the season.
J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park

While Louisiana Tech’s baseball field is currently a temporary home, future plans include a
new stadium. In March 2020, the university will start construction on a new facility at Pat
Patterson Park. The stadium will be renamed to honor legendary coach Pat Patterson. A new
name will give fans a reason to come to the baseball game. The new facility will also have
space for soccer and softball games.

The stadium’s capacity is approximately 2,100, with 1,322 permanent chairback seats. The
stadium also includes a turf berm behind first base and a grassy berm beyond the right field
fence. The walls are padded in Tech blue. The outfield wall is a different height in each of the
three sections. In left field, it’s 12′ tall while it drops to 8′ in right center.
Kyle Crigger
The Louisiana Tech baseball team has added another National Letter of Intent (NLI) signee to
their roster. Kyle Crigger will continue his baseball career next season at Louisiana Tech.
Crigger was named to the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges Second
Team and earned five saves. In three starts on the mound, he pitched a perfect game and
struck out four batters. Crigger earned the win after the Demons came back from a 6-1 deficit.
The Owls used a two-spot in the seventh inning to jump on the Tech bullpen. After a five-pitch
walk from Cullen Hannigan, Rice loaded the bases with one out. Cullen Riedel blasted the next
offering by reliever Greg Martinez. Kyle Crigger came on to record the save and complete the
sweep. Kyle Crigger, meanwhile, pitched four innings and struck out seven batters.
Crigger tossed four scoreless innings and allowed just one run on three hits. He struck out
eight batters in the game and earned a win over LSU. In the seventh, Freshman right-hander

Bryce Wallace singled to right-center field and scored on a wild pitch to tie the game. That
ended the game at 6-5. But the game was not over. Tech will face No. 21 LSU in Alex Box
Stadium this weekend.
Kyle Cooley
Fresh off a five-game winning streak, Louisiana Tech is coming off another win under Kyle
Cooley. The Bulldogs are currently 32-15 overall and 14-7 in Conference USA. They beat ULM
and Northwestern State in midweek games and took two of three games from Old Dominion
over the weekend. Kyle Cooley will pitch the final two games of the weekend series. The
Bulldogs are a good bet to make the NCAA tournament, and they are ranked No. 4 nationally
in the nation in baseball.
Gray is ranked first on the team in batting average and on-base percentage. He leads the
conference in home runs and RBI. His on-base percentage is a near-perfect 1.000. He is also
tied for the team lead in hits and doubles with 57. The junior is also the team’s slugging
percentage leader. His two sisters, Taylor and Emily, are also ranked in the top three in their
respective sports.

The Owls’ pitching is a strength, but they will need runs in order to win games. Dylan
Goldstein has been hot lately, while Gabe Rincones hit three homers against FIU. It will be
tough to keep up with the Bulldogs’ offense, but the Owls’ pitching will help. Sophomore Kyle
Cooley will need to get more consistent starts, so keep an eye out for him.
Cade Doughty
A redshirt sophomore from Denham Springs, Louisiana, was named the SEC Player of the
Week this week after leading LSU to a three-game sweep of Maine. The Denham Springs
native hit.574 and drove in seven runs in two games against the Black Bears. In the three
games, Doughty also collected two doubles and a sac-fly. He finished with 12 RBIs. He’ll be an
important part of the Tigers’ offense.
Louisiana Tech baseball is coming off a weekend sweep of Wichita State. After falling behind
in two games, the Bulldogs came from behind to claim the series win. Young, Philip Matulia
and Cole McConnell led the offense, combining for 17 runs scored. The pitching staff allowed
10 home runs this year, and Wednesday’s starting pitcher has not given up a dinger this
season.
LSU defeated Louisiana Tech in the first game of the series. After trailing 4-0 in the bottom of
the seventh, LSU’s hitters finally got to Joseph Gonzalez, who had pitched six innings. They
loaded the bases and ended up scoring four runs. In the eighth inning, Cade Doughty singled
home two runs to tie the game, 8-8. Cade Doughty walked in two of the runs that followed.
McNeese
The McNeese baseball team opened its three-game series with a 1-0 loss to Louisiana Tech on
Sunday. Starting pitcher Jonathan Fincher pitched six innings and limited the Red Raiders to
one run. It was Johnson’s third multi-RBI game of the season, and he also scored twice.
Peyton Johnson hit a solo home run in the sixth inning, his second this weekend. Chance
Stone pitched three innings and allowed two runs on five hits.
The pitching staff has been impressive this season. With a combined ERA of 1.34, the
McNeese staff has the 10th-lowest ERA in the nation. The Bulldogs’ pitching staff has 103
strikeouts, and Grant Rogers and Ty Abraham have each been 2-0 with a 0.75 ERA. Cameron
Foster has thrown three saves, and has not allowed a hit in 7.1 innings of relief.
Against Southern, the Red Raiders went on a 7-3 road trip. Julian Gonzales hit a pair of home
runs and drove in three runs. Payton Harden added two RBIs and a run. Starting pitcher
Burrell Jones was credited with the win in the road game, while his ERA was 2.86. The team’s
starting pitcher was Daniel Merrill, who allowed three runs on five hits in 5.1 innings.
Rice

Louisiana Tech baseball will face Rice in Conference USA on April 9-11. The Bulldogs are
ranked No. 2 in the Conference USA. They are 20-7 overall and 6-2 in the CUSA. Their last
outing was a 6-0 win over UAB. Rice is a mediocre team that is 13-14-1 overall and 2-5-1 in
the conference. The all-time series between the two schools is 43-12.
LA Tech was led by pitcher Jonathan Fincher who tossed six innings and allowed seven hits
while striking out four batters. Crigger relieved Fincher and struck out four batters in 5.1
innings. Rice scored three runs in the seventh inning on a Jack Riedel two-run homer and an
RBI double down the right field line. In the eighth inning, the Bulldogs went scoreless. They
scored two more in the bottom of the ninth inning, but held Rice scoreless until the ninth
inning.
Louisiana Tech is known for its batting average, but their defense is not nearly as solid as
Rice’s. In addition to defense, Rice is a better team than most people realize. Rice has a
stronger bench, but has little to offer offensively. In addition, the Owls’ pitching has been
improved over the past year. Rice has a much better record than their opponents, but they still
need help to win.
